In my growing collection of vintage pattern company flyers are some lovely glimpses of the sewing world's advice column equivalent (rotten sentence, I know, but I'm sleepy, so just go with it.)
These little articles were one page features called "Adventures in Sewing" by Marian Corey, author of the 1951 "McCall's Complete Book of Dressmaking".
Here is one from McCall's Style News, September 1947 edition. (you can find a pdf for the whole edition in my etsy shop).
|My head is on backwards, but let's talk about marking our patterns, shall we?
Stay tuned for more yet to come, including another Mail Call post, and a sneak peak at the whole suitcase full of sewing loot I brought back with me.
And now, to sleep.
